Just as a reminder (and this is especially relevant for the video codecs 
discussion!), there is no need to repeat previously stated arguments.

When going through feedback, I read all the e-mails on the relevant 
threads, and consider all the arguments made, even those made just once. 
Repeating arguments doesn't make me give them any more weight. :-)

So please, if you see something you want to say has already been said, 
either by you or someone else, just bite your tongue and trust that I will 
take the original mention into account. Thanks!
